Some of us don't know why
We were born into this world
Sometimes can't sleep at night
Worrying about the world fearing it as it turns

Use your hands you know that they are worthy
Use your hands you know you love to get them dirty

You've been lying on a bed
Seeing no way
Crying all the time
Nearly dead
Secrets are lies
Lying in vain
Sleeper awake
Sleeper awake

Some of us don't know that
We were born and sold a lie
Sometimes can't speak, we try
But our voice cannot be heard

Use your hands don't be afraid of standing up for something
Use your hands I know you love to get them dirty

You've been lying on a bed
Seeing no way
Crying all the time
Nearly dead
Secrets are lies
You're lying in vain
Sleeper awake
Sleeper awake

You've been lying on a bed
Seeing no way
Crying all the time
Living dead
Secrets are lies
You're lying in vain
Sleeper awake
Sleeper awake

You've been lying on a bed
Seeing no way
Crying all the time
Living dead
Secrets are lies
You're lying in vain
Sleeper awake
Sleeper awake

    General CommentAm I the only one who is curious about the lines

    "Use your hands you know that they are worthy
    Use your hands you know you love to get them dirty"?

    The image I get is not one I'd expect from Blasko.

    General Commentthis is amazinggggggg.

    i think the lines about using your hands are not associated with sex or anything like that,
    but rather about taking action - the theme of the whole song, "waking up" from a state of insolence & hopelessness.

    sarah is playing on the saying to "get one's hands dirty" - to do hard work.
